Fuck everything & become a pirate
Alt.blogathon site is in progress.

EDIT: http://www.altblogathon.com/

We need:

* To decide if we're going Wordpress or Drupal. Anyone with either skillset able to volunteer?

* A Wordpress/Drupal whiz on call the day of. I'm managing Team Venture, blogging myself, and most likely keeping the alt.blogathon blog running, I will not have the spare cycles to fix the site if it goes wonky.

* Graphics. An "alt.blogathon" header, and icons/banners to publicize.

* A decision on whether we're using alt-blogathon.com, altblogathon.com, or altblogathon.org, because bless tanyad and awfief, we have got those to choose from.

* Backup/assistant(s) for me on the running-the-blogathon tip. I will take point and get shit done, but having a few people to tap will make this much less crazy.

EDIT: On the funny side, I just e-mailed my pit crew to get their schedules set in stone. yendi, feste_sylvain, swashbucklr.

First line of my e-mail was "Well, this is an excellent argument for polyamory."

"Well, this is an excellent argument for polyamory."

[invoke sarcasm] Does this mean if people volunteer for a key role they have a better shot at a date (eye brows wiggle and an evil chortle is heard). [banish sarcasm]

Best wishes in your endeavor. My Wordpress skills are for solo author sites only, thus would likely not be up to your needs, alas.

Rather, it means that if you're schtupping me you automatically get drafted into stuff like this. :)

That seems eminentely fair.

P.S. +15 points for excellent use of Yiddish.

Oh, hey, what's the best way to coordinate me donating a shiny jewelry thing? Email?

Domain names: just redirect and flip a coin for your canonical.

You could flip the phrasing on your icon, and use it for entirely different posts... or the same ones, depending on how your mind works. *grin*

there's also alt-blogathon.com/home for the Drupal installation.

Host got dns issues resolved and I'm ready to rock on getting it all themed up for ya'll. If you decide to go to altblogathon.org or altblogathon.com I can do a redirect =)
